Exploring The Eastern Sierras
Gary Sharlow, Education Manager, Photographer
Geoff Willard, Education Manager, Natural History Guide
Sunday July 15th - Tuesday July 17th Sunrise to Sunset
The Sierra Nevada is a photographer's dreamscape. John Muir famously referred to it as 'the Range of Light,' and Ansel Adams' stunning photos made the beauty of the Sierra Range known around the world. Immerse yourself in the practice of Conservation Photography in this special field excursion. In 3 days, we will explore the landscape and wildlife diversity of the Eastern Sierra to include Owens Valley, Mono Lake and Yosemite National Park where we will grapple with the area's complicated water and conservation history, and gain invaluable insight into how to capture the landscape through your lens. By the end of the trip, we aim to help each participant complete a photo series that tells a visually-captivating story of the land, its people, its past and future. Moderate hiking is to be expected with free time during the middle of the day for adventuring.
